I hate to say that what started out with so much promise could end so predictably. So tough. This series had it all, a great heroine, rapid magic learning, even faster magic dispensing, along with skilled swordsmen, even ethereal companions, but still it couldn't deliver at the end. Oh my.

I have to admit that the book kept me reading until the end, and the author actually put a lot of thought into the sequencing of this story. I must just be feeling a little contradictory tonight, that's all. It's just that there was so much effort expended into explaining why there had to be five and how important they all were and by the end they just seemed to have fallen all together haphazardly. Too bad, because the opening premise had much more mystery and opportunity to it. Somehow it just seemed like the five came out of the woodwork just as the author NEEDED them to rather than having been originally FULLY thought out and PLANNED for from the beginning.
